Lending the judge Mrs. Barbara Rupert. She wrote like this about Arttu. " I liked all my winners in each class and was enamored with the CC dog who possessed Ridgeback type; yes he stood tall but gave me a pictures of balance, strenght, power and attitude.

In the end,  my CC dog was Best og Breed. He never let down and looked and acted like he could go for ever - a good one to have at your side. His confidence commanded me to look at him. He knew who he was - there was no other. "

I am so happy and flattered about these words. I love my big boy Arttu so much. He is allready gave me more than I ever could dream. Thanks to go also breeder Anne for this lovely boy. He is all what I ever dream for even he is quite big ;)
